this is a guy who wants to give tax cuts to the wealthc and to voucherrize medicare. romney will say he is the defender of the middle class. t both sides say this could get heated tonight. >> chris, thank you. >> good evening. >> we go to jim lehrer of pbs moderating this debate. >> i'm jim lehrer and welcome you to the first of the 2012l presidential debates between president barack obama the democratic nominee and former, massachusetts governor mitt romney the republican nominee. this debate and the next three, two presidential, one vice presidential, are sponsored byo the commission on presidential debates. tonight's 90 minutes will be about domestic issues and will follow a format designed by the commission. there will be six roughly 15 minute segments with two minutt answers for are the first question and then open discussion for the remainder o. each segment. o thousands of people offered suggestions on segment subjects or questions via the internet and other means.. but i made the final selections and for the record, they were not submitted for approval tomi the commission or the
of that, at the stroke of midnight on january 1. all the bush tax rates, better than $100 billion worth of spending cuts. they all kick in at identically the same time. think about that, as we rifle through this. top rate on capital gain jumping to 20%. dividend taxed at regular income tax rates. child credit, essentially being slashed. return of the married tax penalty. so for everyone involved, everyone getting socked big-time. it could go on and on i'm going to mention this as you are going to see this throughout the show. to get an idea of how much is at stake, who pays for this? i'm telling you, at the rate we stand, everybody will. every single american family will. anyone paying taxes or expecting to pay taxes will pay more in the new year. all the bush tax rate disappear. and unless congress does to coddle together even an extension and soon, it happens at the stroke of midnight january 1. some economists said this is simply going to cost the economy one full percentage point off the gdp. do the math. one full percentage point is roughly what we are growing right now so that cou
knows taxes are due on april 15. we set up tax centers on the base three months prior and we take active duty military personnel off their regular duties and they go in and assist people with their taxes. you have people assisting with federal and state taxes. we provide nothing of the sort for voting registration. the move act was supposed to get offices set up on the basis. everybody could have gone in to check in with that voting assistance officer. that has never been in place while we were on active duty. we don't want a stack of voter registration ballots sitting on a counter somewhere. we want them to physically go in and say whether they want to register or not. this is the only way we can track it and find out if it is sure apathy which i find hard to believe. or is it just not having access? host: there is a project called a military voter protection project and they compared 2008 ballot requests and 2012 ballot requests and looking at key states, they thought there was a great difference as far bell requests. do you believe there is a significant difference? guest: this is hor
of taxes. there aren't enough tax loopholes or tax deductions to pay for romney's tax cut unless you cut into home interest mortgage deductions, unless you get rid of state and local taxes. that will hit the middle class hard. you have to be honest about this. the debate hurt obama and helped romney, and romney's gotten a bump in the polls, although it seems to be flattening out. you look at the new poll in ohio, the president is at 51%, romney is at 47%. i think the president, the fundamental structure of the race hasn't been changed, but if he doesn't go on the attack, if biden doesn't do a good job against ryan, and if the president doesn't show up and isn't strong in the second debate, then you're going to have a tossup race. >> well, i would disagree with your approach, first of all. i don't approach it that way. that's going back and relegating all the old arguments. in spirit what i would do, unlike shrumy, i would take the big issue that is separating the candidates, don't get into the little trench warfare about what's your tax plan and where were you on medicare two weeks ago.
be aborted talked about, taxes, regulation, energy and. the only way is to get into the game and to point out to the american people what needs to be fixed. in order for us to invest in u.s. and create jobs. .> we've got a good role models we don't even rate legislators. our best teachers or the labor unions and then george soros later on. he taught every wealthy american that you cannot afford to sit on the sidelines. so i say go for it. >> we don't do endorsement either. we have a pac. we are very involved. we will probably connect with a quarter million retailers and millions of their employees, not endorsing anyone or telling them how to vote, but getting them involved. there's a sense that if people have a better understanding of our position, there's a greater likelihood we will get some action from them. that's why we have engaged our membership. >> let's get questions from the audience. don't feel shy. please raise your hand. if you could give me your name and your affiliation, that would be wonderful. there are microphones roving. the lady with the red jacket. >> good morning. my nam
that. you're also taxing the middle class under the ryan plan. that is disdain today. >> all right, dr. ruiz. so do you want a 30-second rebuttal of the campaign? >> of course, i do. this is critically important. was there police brutality or was there not? was it an elder or a child? these things, folks, are in the press. they are in "the boston herald," they are in the harvard newspaper. they are documented. they are written. they're spelled out for people to see. it is critically important that people know that who he's saying he is right now is not who he is. further, what i said in that email message was that the city councilman should have been held accountable for allowing durhamville to be the third-world condition that it was and that it continues to be. have your party release the entire interslew. -- interview. release the interview that exonerates me. >> we're down to the last couple of questions. elizabeth, you have the floor. >> dr. ruiz, in 2010 a bipartisan federal commission unveiled the plan to cut the nation's deficit by $4 trillion through a mix of tax increases and
about his position and let's start with taxes. governor, the president keeps saying that mitt romney is proposing a $5 trillion tax cut. that is not true. >> well, chris, wait a minute here. the governor -- former governor romney is proposing a 20% cut to income taxes, including income taxes for the wealthiest of americans. and, i believe a 30% cut for corporate income taxes, including big all, socking all of us at the pump, right now and any economist may debate whether it adds up to $4.9 trillion or $5 trillion and the fact of the matter. >> clayton: in this debate we saw big bird meet the big lie. those tax cuts, there are costs to those tax cuts, the biggest driver to our deficit... >> chris: if i may, sir, you are talking about half the planet like talking about obama's jobs plan, the entire plan is to give more money to teachers and, that is not obama's plans and similarly you are mischaracterizing the romney plan, saying, it is -- you are right, $5 trillion by lowering the tax rate but he talks about cutting loopholes... >> oh, chris, which loopholes and which deductions? sena
and rescued general motors. we went ahead and made sure that we cut taxes for middle class. and in addition to that, when that occurred, what did romney do. romney said no, let detroit go bankrupt. we moved in and helped people refinance their homes. governor romney said no, let foreclosures hit the bottom. but it shouldn't be surprising for a guy who says 47% of the american people are unwilling to take responsibility for their own lives. my friend recently in a speech in washington said 30% of the american people are takers. these people are my mom and dad. the people i grew up. my neighbors. they pay more effective tax than governor romney pays in his federal income tax. they are elderly people who, in fact, are living off social security. they are veterans and people fighting in afghanistan right now who are, quote, not paying any taxes. i have had it up to here with this notion that 47%-- it's about time they take some responsibility here. and instead of signing pledges to grover norquist not to ask the wealthiest among us to contribute to bring back the middle class, they should be si
/11, and today osama bin laden is dead. four years ago, i promise to cut taxes for middle-class families, and we have, by $3,600. of promised to cut taxes for small business owners, and we have 18 times. we got back every dime we used to rescue the banks, and we passed a law, to the end taxpayer-funded wall street bailouts permanently. we passed health care reform, also known as obamacare, because i do care. i do not want insurance companies, jerking you around anymore. i do not suit him -- do not want somebody without health care because they have a pre-existing condition. we repealed "don't ask, don't tell," as i promised him we would. today, he no outstanding soldier, marine, sailor, here man -- airman, none of them will be kicked out of the military because of who they are and who they love. when you think about ohio, and when governor romney said that we should let the auto industry go bankrupt -- we said, we are not going to take your advice. do not boo. vote. we reinvented a diving auto industry that supplies one in eight ohio jobs and has come roaring back to the top of the world. four y
to tackle at an issue, increasing their taxes? >> let's start with the families. they will get their attention. the voters have to understand all this, which they did not, and voters need to understand what we have to do to get all this corrected, and they do not. if we ever get that over to the voters, they will vote for the people who are geared up, ready, and know how to do it and are running on that basis, and then we can change this country forever and get us back to where we used to be when i was a boy in the depression. why schoolteachers and would have been doctors, lawyers, indian chiefs today. with luck they were making $200 a month, but they were talented, they brought out the best in all of us. they were by example really fine people, and with the highest qualities. all that got transmitted to the children at class a even if they were not getting it at home. >> when you were running you were talking about increasing not necessarily dollars per capita, but investing in education, communications, and transportation. even while trying to reduce deficits and debt, you w
taxes for the wealthy. in the primary he said he's going to cut taxes for everyone. >> i'm going to lower rates across the board for all americans. isn't that a change? >> let me repeat what i said. >> lying, denying and alibiing. >> is that leadership? >> we can't debate the debate. >> the war continues. >> let's move on. >> we are awaiting a major foreign policy address. >> romney boiled down the president's foreign policy to one of hope. >> hope is not a strategy. >> but on actual foreign policy romney's specifics were rather thin. >> i'll support the libyan's people efforts to support a lasting government. >> how about iran? >> prevent them from acquiring nuclear weapons capability. >> that's the same. >> this is the same guy who couldn't even go to the olympics. >> he will say anything, he will do anything. >> his mention of russia. >> without question of number one geo political foe. >> there are two kinds of success, initial and ultimate. >> i still believe you in and i hope you still believe in me. if you vote for me in november i'll finish what we started. >> with four w
on that but the fiscal cliff being the package of spending cuts and tax increases that are scheduled to go into effect the end of the year. and there is a lot of worry among economists and business people that could throw the economy and spending cuts in defense, you've got a lot of defense contractors word rid about what is going to happen after the turn of the new year. it's anybody's guess in terms of whether congress can come together after the election but before every new person takes office. there is hope that in the november through january period that congress and the white house can come to an agreement and either postpone those spending cuts or tax increases or come to some new agreement on the budget that could replace the fiscal cliff. i think there will be a postponement of it and perhaps waiting for the new presidential and congressional elections, wait until they come in and sort it out. but depending on how the election goes, the lame duck session which will be in office after the election might be a reason to make a deal before the new people come in. so we'll see. host: the next cal
-mail address. d e- [ male announcer ]  who will raise taxes on the middle class? according to an independent, non-partisan study, barack obama and the liberals will raise taxes on the middle class by $4,000. the same organization says the plan from mitt romney and common sense conservatives is "not a tax hike on the middle class." want proof? read the non-partisan study for yourself at american.com. obama and his liberal allies? we can't afford four more years. i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. . >>> the head of lockheed martin is under fire after he's accused of knocking down a number of threes -- trees on his property. last month, montgomery county fined robert stevens $500. the property sits on protected land at the national park service overseas. he said he cut down some of the trees because they were in danger of falling after the storm in june. he's promising to restore the land. >>> and that is not the place you so a car, but someone posted the video. the driver initially parked in the circle, which he shouldn't have done and decides to drive around it befo
>> eric: that's it for us. >> jamie: shannon? >> my plan is not to raise taxes on anyone. i'm going to reduce taxes for middle-income americans. >> mr. romney wants another $5 trillion in tax cuts that he can't pay for. >> you can't have it both ways. a battle over $5 trillion, your tax dollars, president obama says a tax cut by the governor would roll out benefits to only the wealthiest americans at the cost of the middle class. romney says, no matter how many times the president says it it is not true. who is telling the truth? i'm shannon bream, live in washington. we have representatives from both sides of the aisle. rnc chairman, reince priebus and dnc chairwoman, debbie wasserman-schultz. welcome. we start in washington with reince priebus. i want to talk about the unemployment numbers for september, 7.8%, the lowest since president obama has been in office. he said, you can't turn back now, america is moving in the right direction. has he made a case that we are seeing recovery? >> not at all. first of all, we will let the economists argue over the numbers. i know people are
the other debate where he made stuff up and didn't know his own tax plan, making them stick to what they've been the last six or seven months. >> this is where i think paul ryan will have pressure on him and where i expect paul ryan to perform very well. i mean, i found obama's debate performance totally lacking in specifics. we still don't know what his tax plan is or his deficit plan or his budget plan. but paul ryan has become the personification for the democrats of all that is callous and cold and evil about the romney campaign. so ryan now has i think an opportunity to not only explain his plan more importantly romney's plan, but to explain it in a way that is compassionate and human. and i expect he'll do a very good job of that. >> there's a tricky thing that ryan has to do. and i think you suggested it there, carly. there's clearly a distinction between the ryan plan. actually, there have been multiple ryan plans on multiple fronts. >> that's right. >> and the romney plan. so ryan can't get lured into a debate over the specifics. >> i agree with you. >> here's the problem, mitt
measures designed to raise taxes to help state schools at the center of a statewide debate. voters decide the outcome of the propositions. the head of the california schools weigheden to nbc bay area. and in the newsroom with more on what he hopes voters will do come november. hello. >> state superintendent tom tolikson wants voters to say yes on both measures. we were able to catch up, in the bay area for grand opening of the delta center. with the election so close, edge kaegs a -- education and the props are on his mind. he knows it can get confusing. measures do similar things. that's the point to provide a major rescue plans for schools. wou without the passage of eithers. schools will face devastating cuts and possibly have to shorten the school year by four weeks. >> it can be confusing. i urge voters to look carefully at votes. i am, the head of education for california, superintendent of schools, and i have looked at them both and i believe their vote will be valuable in restoring billions our schools need. by the way if they both pass -- you are not double taxed. the one with th
over joe biden's smile. here is a little of last night's debate on taxes. [video clip] >> the middle class will pay less and people making a million dollars will begin to attributed -- to contribute slightly more. the continuation of the bush tax cuts, we argued those tax cuts for the wealthy should be allowed to expire. of those, 800 million billion dollars of that goes to people making car minimum of $1 billion. we see no justification in these economic times, they are not asking for this continued tax cut, but my friends are insisting on it. if 120,000 families, by continuing that tax cuts, will get an additional $500 billion in tax relief over the next 10 years and their income is an average of $8 million. we want to expend the middle class tax cut permanently. these guys will not allow us to. in the senate we say let's have a vote on middle-class tax cuts and the upper class tax cut and let's vote on it. >> our entire premise of the tax reform plans is to grow the economy and create jobs. it's a plan estimated to create 7 million jobs. we think that the government taking a 28% o
, the first half hour, folks. (applause) the first half hour was an or geoof tax policy minutish-- orgy was tax policy minutia, and they moved on to the intricacies of medicare solvency it was off the hook, in that it would have been more interesting to listen to a dial tone. (laughter) but however wonky it got last night there was no miss tacking that there was a fire breathing leftie on that stage spewing heated socialist rhetoric. >> i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. regulation is essential. you can't have a free market work if you don't have regulation. preexisting conditions are covered under my plan. and with regards to health care wa, we did in massachusetts is a model for the nation, state-by-state. >> stephen: yes, mitt romney's health-care plan is just like his positions, the details change state-by-state. (laughter) now-- folks, you know me-- you watch this show, you know me. as a stanch conservative i condemn any help can who-- republican who distances himself from everything he has said on the campaign trail. but it worked so [bleep] it. (laughter)
. >> you can do that by cutting taxes? >> those are your words, not mine. >> thank you very much, sir. >> that was kind of strange. trying to stuff words in people's mouths? >> it sounds like you're -- >> ryan folks putting the paper in front of the camera and everything. vice presidential nominee paul ryan getting annoyed in this interview with terry camp in flint, michigan. the campaign even after the interview was over still went out of their way to trash the reporter that paul ryan walked out of that interview on. the campaign giving on the record quotes calling the reporter an embarrassment. the city where that reporter works and where that interview took place does have the worst violent crime rate in the nation. god bless flint, michigan. so that line of questioning here for mr. ryan was understandable. maybe even predictable. but beyond the newsworthiness of paul ryan getting up and taking off his microphone and ending the interview and beyond the newsworthiness of the campaign going after this reporter, there was what that reporter was able to elicit from paul ryan. there's h
